Front hub assembly

I need some help with my jeep. I am replacing my front wheel bearings and brakes on a 99 TJ's. I bought a set of wheel bearings that had 1 1/8 in studs and my jeep has 1 1/2 in studs. I returned the bearings and had to buy wheel bearings for a 2000 TJ's. after I installed the new wheel bearings and new rotors and put tires back on I could not turn my tires. I discovered that the new rotors were tight against the steering knuckles so I pulled the rotors off and compared them to my old ones and the offset is more. Why do I have to buy 2000 hub assemblies for a 99? And do I also have to buy rotors for a 2000?

The hub bearings and rotors changed size 99-00 you need to measure your old parts to get the correct ones...
You could have the newer style. So try your old rotor on and see if it still hits, if not carry it in to compare to the new
